    I tend to agree. Lacy had just about overcome the notion that he was "injury prone" by playing so well down the stretch last year. He had some minor injuries last season, but he was at his best when Alabama needed him. He got stronger as the season progressed. His injury problems seemed to be well behind him.

    Sadly, even if Lacy has a great day at Alabama's workout his injury history will once again be a primary topic, not just a sidebar question.

    I hate to have to agree, but I do. At some point, the discussion has to be over connective tissue issues. HS coaches I know told me that Cadillac Williams had health issues which required him to take corticoid steroids regularly. That does bad things to connective tissues and bones, among other side effects. IIRC, Williams and Brown both went in the top five in the NFL draft in 2005. While I wouldn't label his NFL career a complete bust, he spent a fair portion of in on the IR list. I think his case, along with some others, has made NFL GMs look long and hard at injury histories in positions of high wear and tear like RB. This injury didn't help EL's case at all...

    Up until this hammy deal, I thought his only major injury was a turf toe. Granted that's a pain to deal with but it's not an ACL tear. Is there any other injury on his resume?

    Yes, both ankles and I think there're more. That's just first to come to mind. The hamstring may have been a problem also. Hamstrings tend to linger. I've had that injury (among many others).

    If he's there at pick 30 it's hard to see the Falcons passing on him.

    Provided he gets healthy by pro day and runs a good 40, I think he's a first round pick.

    Not anymore. No need to pay first round money for a RB who is not a feature back. He'll be in a rotation system.
